It has finally become reality. We have officially opened the doors to Kollafoss Gamedev Residency!
In 2014 we hosted the first ever Isolation Game Jam with game developers coming in from all over world. Programmers, visual artists, sound and designers travelled a great distance over the atlantic ocean to this secluded farm in a dead end valley far away from civilization just to make games. They loved it so much that some of them even returned the year after. In 2015 we got so many signups to the Isolation Game Jam that it could had filled a waiting list for the next 3-5 years. So we realized that we had to adjust the format a little bit.
So we created the Kollafoss Gamedev Residency. You see, me and Arnfríður Hanna Hreinsdóttir have a huge farm for ourselves with 3 extra bedrooms sitting empty and enough land space to host a dozen music festivals at the same time. So we thought, why not invite more game developers (and those interested in game development) to live here for a short periods to enjoy the serenity of the area.
Looking forward to seeing you.
